Customer: Hi, How much is your paint?"
Clerk: Our lowest price is $12 a gallon, we have 60 different prices, up to $200 a gallon.
Customer: What's the difference in the paint?
Clerk: It's all the same paint.
Customer: Then I would like some of your $12 paint. And I want to paint tomorrow
Clerk: Sir, the paint for tomorrow is $200
Customer: How do I get the $12 paint?
Clerk: You buy the paint now, but you agree not to paint for three weeks. And you must paint over a Saturday night.
Customer: You've got to be kidding!
Clerk: Oh the price per gallon just went up to $16.
Customer: The price went up as we were talking?
Yes sir. We change the prices and rules hundreds of times a day. SO I suggest you purchase your paint as soon as possible. How Many gallons do you want?
Customer: Five gallons. Make that six, so I'll have enough.
Clerk: Well, sir, if you buy paint and don't use it, there are penalties and possible confiscation of the paint you already have.
Customer: Forget it! I'll buy what I need somewhere else.
Clerk: I don't think so, sir. You can buy paint for your bathroom and bedrooms from someone else, but you can only buy paint for your connecting hall from us. That'll be $300 a gallon.
Customer: You're insane!
Clerk: Thanks for painting with us, sir.
